Kale chips!!! I wash the kale thoroughly, and rip it up into bite size "chips". Very light coat of olive oil and sprinkle with easy salt and pepper. 350 in the oven for 10ish minutes! Easy and delicious.

I would recommend speaking to your doctor regarding healthy foods for your medical condition.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

Raw veggies, salad, salmon patties, hard boiled eggs, mini quiches, cottage cheese, unsweetened yogurt, unsweetened flaked coconut, nuts and seeds. Add some yoga for that high blood pressure and you're good to go.


RE: High Cholesterol - A very interesting study below about how women with low cholesterol have a higher risk of death from all causes.


Is the use of cholesterol in mortality risk algorithms in clinical guidelines valid? Ten years prospective data from the Norwegian HUNT 2 study.

oatmeal or other whole grains (you can do a fruit salad w/whole grains too)
unsalted nuts
veggies, fruit (apples, grapes, strawberries, and citrus esp)- can dip into greek yogurt with seasonings (pb, herbs, etc- watch the sodium!) or hummus (just puree beans, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, pepper- watch how much salt you add!)
soy- edamame or tofu sticks w/dip!

Current goal:
- 32 by end of April.

Next goals: -
39 total by end of May.
-46 by end of June.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

Oatmeal and bananas are supposed to be great for reducing cholesterol, as is anything with lots of fiber, which will help pull the cholesterol out of you.

Keep an eye on the sodium, which will be much easier to do if you are eating whole foods and not processed ones.

Some of my favorite snacks which might work for you:

-Raw cucumbers, carrots or sliced peppers and 1/4 c. hummus
-Banana or apple with 1 Tbsp. nut butter
-Sliced deli meat rolls on a lettuce leaf, sprinkled with spices (look for Thanksgiving-style or other lower-salt versions)
-Low-fat string cheese
-Fruit! Any piece of fruit or a cup of berries is a GREAT snack. Add some ground flax seeds for an extra nutritional punch!
-Smoked oysters on whole-wheat crackers
-Decadent "peanut butter cup" smoothie: one banana, 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder, 2 Tbsp. protein powder (I use Trader Joe's chocolate-flavored hemp protein), 1 c. milk or milk substitute, 1 Tbsp. peanut butter... delicious!

Good luck!
I believe you can set your Spark nutrition goals to consider both of your health concerns, and they will automatically populate all meals and snacks for you, to help you see what is "good for you" so you can start to learn to plan all of your own eating.
